Faves and Raves

Anyone But You is my all time favorite Jennifer Crusie book. It is misnamed, should be called Fred's Story or Fred Plays Matchmaker or Fred Takes Charge, something along those lines.

Fred, the Basset Hound on the front cover, is the star of the story. I'm sure the author intended for him to be a secondary character, but, as in movies, animals steal the show.

There are no surprises, no dark deeds, the heroine is a little depressed but downright pleasant compared to some Crusie women. The hero is sexy, fun, and an animal lover what more could you want in a romantic comedy? How about truth, emotional conflict, and sexual tension that sizzles?

Thanks to the miracle of backlists and smart editors this book is available now and revised by an older and smarter Jennifer Crusie.
